1. Damage Prevention
Wrapping up or covering your hair at night is very much an ingrained and necessary step for most of us. However, the fabrics of choice play an essential role in making sure your efforts are not futile. Silk/satin scarves and bonnets are best at retaining moisture, preserving styles and protecting those delicate edges. We think the ones at SILKE LONDON are cute enough to double up as daytime wear too! Get yours here!
Alternatively, investing in a silk/satin pillowcase can also help retain moisture in your hair (and skin), prevent tangles and minimize breakage. Due to less friction from the material - especially for those of us with natural kinky/curly tresses- you will be able glide around on your pillow, without the stress of worrying if your bonnet will still be on your head in the morning. We know, right? Game changer!
2. Promote Growth
Massaging your scalp is not only highly therapeutic but can also increases blood flow to your scalp, ultimately promoting hair growth. You can do this with an electric scalp massager or just your good old hands for about 10mins every night, adding an oil of your choice (not essential). Also try inverting your head whilst massaging to get the blood really pumping.
We found an electric head massager that does the trick. Find it here
